     Nobel Prize-month is always fairly busy at the complete review, and this year's October bump in traffic was pretty much the usual.
     Surprisingly, however, no newly-reviewed titles made it onto the bestseller list, the first tim in a while that has happened.

For recent bestseller lists, go to previous lists.
For annual and older lists, see also the 1999, 2000, 2001, 2002, 2003, 2004, , 2007, 2008, 2009, 2010, 2011, 2012 , and 2013 lists.
